I am very concerned about one of the older women at church. She seems a little confused. A few weeks ago she was lost it the church and couldn't find her way to a classroom she goes to every week. I think what worries me most of all is that she is still driving. I adore older women. I love to spend time with them. It makes me sad to see her in this stage of her life.
Nope what this blog is about is how has I was standing there so relieved because I didn't burn my biscuits I thought of my grandmother at the end of her life. I thought of the woman I mentioned from church. Then I thought about my poor poor children.
See here is the issue. If I ever start to suffer from dementia I don't know how they will tell. By the time symptoms become obvious I will be pretty far gone. My life right now is a check list for dementia:
Forget things in the oven or on the stove.....check
Forget what you were going to say......check
Get lost or confused about directions to places you should know.... check
Losing everyday items ...... check
Putting things in the wrong place like milk in the pantry for example.....check
Missing/forgetting appointments...... check
Repeating things you already said..... check
Missing Birthdays/Holidays/Important Events......check
Yep. I am thinking by the time my children realize something is actually wrong there is not telling how far gone I will have to be.
